Sunny mornings, shady afternoons. You can chase the shade. The rock is easy on the hands, with nice pockets and edges.

Routes range from 5.7 to 5.12, mostly sport 40 to 90ft. About 40 routes total.

All the bolts I've seen are 3/8", but I've heard there are some homemade hangers in the area.

Getting There 

From highway 68, between Kingman and Bullhead City: Head South on Eager Rd (Egar), then turn right on Shinarump Dr, then right on Guthrie Rd. Park on the west side of the road at a traihead sign, or continue to the end of Guthrie Rd, if the gate is open.

Hike north on Guthrie road, past a gate, to the approach trail which will be on the left, and switch-backs up the hill. The approach is less than a half mile.

The land on the righthand side of Guthrie road is private, so please be respectful of residents.

The crag is the prominent prow to the northwest and is on BLM land.
